So, still running unRAID 6.7.2 - but I had enough of trying to get the nVidia GT 1030 OC Phonenix card from Asus to work in the Dell T310 box, and tonight ran out to Microcenter and bought a low profile/low power MSI Radeon R7 240 2GB video card. Yes, I knew it wasn't going to be blazing fast, but then neither is my server. The card didn't need an extra power plug, just the power from the PCIe slot. And I just wanted something to work in the tower that would give me some decent graphics capabilities and not the accused "error 43." And sure enough, the Radeon is in - working on the first try with the VM, loaded up the updated Win10x64 drivers - and is broadcasting through TeamViewer at a decent 1280x1024 resolution. (Trust me, this is soooo much better than a Error 43 and default 800x600 resolution... I can at least run some programs again from the server!) In particular, I was able to run Second Life (it's a fun virtual world game for me) and it actually looked pretty good. Not amazing, but "pretty good." And although I just got a good hint from another poster about a potential fix for a VM using the nVidia 1030, I decided am going to let this server configuration "cook" for awhile "as is." Plus I can still use the 1030 in another box I am building for doing some video editing and graphics work. Edited November 25, 2019 by rollieindc Quote Link to comment
